|TSA Administrator John S. Pistole Delivering Keynote Address at ACF 2014
TIACA is pleased to announce that TSA Administrator John S. Pistole will be the keynote speaker at Air Cargo Forum in Seoul, Korea. Mr. Pistole will speak at the luncheon on Wednesday, October 8th, addressing the forum participants on air cargo issues including risk-based security measures.
We encourage those who have not yet registered as a forum delegate to do so quickly in order to not miss out on the Administrator's keynote address.
The eleventh workshop on the development of advanced development for security applications (ADSA11) has been scheduled November 4th and 5th at Northeastern University in Boston. The title of the workshop will be “Explosive Detection in Cargo for Aviation Security – Part II.” This workshop is a continuation of the last workshop, ADSA10.

|US Department of Transportation Lithium Battery Final Rule|
July 31, 2014 - As information, click here to view the pre-publication version of the lithium battery final rule, issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). We expect that the official version will be published within the next 5-10 days in the Federal Register.
It is worthwhile to note that the DOT has harmonized most of the lithium battery provisions in the U.S. hazardous materials regulations with international standards. As a member of the coalition led by the Rechargeable Battery Association (PRBA), TIACA applauds this harmonization of the U.S. regulations. The coalition has advocated this position ever since the lithium battery proposed rule was published in January of 2010.
